SUMMARY 



The Sharpwriter pencil is that one-time-use mechanical pencil that pretty much everyone 
has used before. So we probably all know that it is very skinny and can hurt your hand if you 
write with it for long periods of time. I am going to show you a quick and easy way to make a 
gripper for this pencil. 



Step 1 — Make a Gripper for Sharpwriter Pencil 




• Materials: 

• 3/8-in. clear hose 

• A glass of hot water 

• And the Sharpwriter pencil

Step 2 




• The tube will not normally fit over 
the pencil. To make it more pliable, 
dip a 1-inch section of hose into the 
hot water. I didn't want to get 
burned so I got it out with tongs. 



Step 3 




• Then muscle the piece of tube over the pencil. 

• Dip in the hot water if it starts to get hard again.

Step 4 




• And that's it! Once it cools it will 
never come off so you don't need 
to glue it on. 

• And that's how you make a cheap 
gripper for your pencil!
